Polish tourist/vlogger Eva zu Beck who rose to fame last year performing the Kiki challenge on Pakistan’s state-run airlines, PIA has shared her experience on visiting Pakistan.
In a video posted on social media, the traveller said over the last year she travelled far and wide in Pakistan and now she and said she would like to share what she believes is the future of tourism in Pakistan.
Beck said, “See, most of my friends start to chuckle when I tell them this, but it’s really no joke, but I believe Pakistan can be the world’s number one tourism destination. It really can.”
She then proceeds to give a few arguments as to why she stands her ground and believes in Pakistan.
According to Beck, “Starting with the mountains of Pakistan, one of the greatest assets that nature has bestowed on this country. Beyond the current resorts of Malam Jabba and Naltar. Why can't ski resorts dot the peak of these mountains.”
“And beyond that, looking at the beautiful landscapes views of Skardu and Hunza and Swat..... why can’t Pakistan become the next Bhutan or Nepal?” she said.
Beck continues, “With mountaineering and mountain trekking infrastructures that rival those of its neighbouring countries? With eight of the world’s 20 tallest mountains, this should be the epicentre of the world’s trekking, adventures and mountain tourism.”
Speaking about the Hingol National Park in Balochistan, Beck said, “Why can’t this become the next Grand Canyon?”
About the beaches in the province, Beck believes, the entire coast of the Arabian Sea with the right attitude and vision could become one of the world’s prime beach destinations for the seasons. “Imagine five-star resorts, private islands and beach shacks lining the beautiful coastline.”
